Local organisations such as Town or Parish Councils, Neighbourhood Forums or qualifying community organisations in England can apply for grants to support community-led building and housing projects.
Two types of grants are available. These are:
- The Community-led Buildings Pre-Feasibility Grant
- The Community-led Buildings Project Support Grant.
Through the Community-led Buildings Pre-Feasibility Grant scheme, grants of up between £1,000 and £10,000 are available to assess the feasibility of a community-led building project prior to submitting a Community Right to Build Order. The Community-led Buildings Project Support Grant scheme provides funding of between £5,000 and £40,000 to pay for the expert help and other costs associated needed to progress a community-led building project to the point of submitting a Community Right to Build Order.
Application to both schemes can be submitted until the 1st October 2017.
